NFL Playoffs: Kansas City Chiefs & San Francisco 49ers to Meet in Super Bowl LIV

The Kansas City Chiefs will meet the San Francisco 49ers in Super Bowl LIV on February 2, after both teams won their divisional championship games Sunday, ESPN reports. The Chiefs defeated the Tennessee Titans 35-24 in the AFC Championship game in Kansas City, led by quarterback Patrick Mahomes, who rallied the chiefs from a 17-7 deficit to claim the victory. Mahomes had 294 yards passing and three touchdown passes, but it was his 27-yard touchdown run late in the second quarter that gave Kansas City its first lead, which they never relinquished. The appearance will be the franchise’s third appearance in the Super Bowl, but the first since 1970. In the NFC Championship game, the San Francisco 49ers used a big first half to defeat the Green Bay Packers 37-20 at home and punch their ticket to the big game. The 49ers took a 27-0 lead into halftime, and then held off a furious Green Bay rally in the second half. Running back Raheem Mostert had a huge game, carrying the load for the 49er rushing attack after Tevin Coleman went down early in the first quarter. Mostert, who has been cut seven times in his NFL career, finished with four touchdowns and 220 yards rushing. The win makes it the first time in seven years that the 49ers have made it to the Super Bowl, which takes place February 2 in Miami.
